Yaheetech has several dog playpens available, and when given the opportunity to review one, I got the tallest one they had. Luke is a good jumper, so I was concerned this would not even be tall enough to contain him. However, it’s small enough area-wise that I don’t think he could get the momentum to jump out. Still, there is plenty of room for even a medium-sized dog like him to move around.

We had to stop using wire crates because the clanking noise scared Luke, so of course when we first set this up, he refused to go in. However, I let it sit quietly for a few days, and then I was able to lure him in with treats. When I made noise removing the door, he was skittish to come out, but he did (I only had to remove it because it wasn’t in a level area so the door wouldn’t stay open – by the way, it is easily removable! – and you should set it up in a level area). Therefore, if you have a fearful dog like ours, just take it slowly! Unlike with a small crate, there’s little worry of it making much noise once it’s put together. In a smaller crate, Luke’s tail would always hit the side.
We received the 8-panel dog playpen 40” height to review.
Here are the key features:
- Lightweight, yet heavy duty attractive black metal.
- Easy to assemble – no tools needed!
- Easy to transport, doesn’t take up much room and is easily disassembled.
- The rods used to connect the panels stick into the ground to keep it securely in place.
- The dog playpen can be configured into different shapes, can be easily connected to another for an even larger area, or you can leave out some panels to make it smaller.
While we don’t have an everyday use for this with Luke right now, this could be great for future dogs or puppies that might join the family. It could be made small enough to use in the house easily. I also could have used it when we had our cat Sam, to let her be outside without having to leash her or keep a close eye on her!
We will find a use for it in the meantime, however……this is going to be great for our chicks and keets when they hatch! We can have it inside the coop configured with only 4 panels to start, and then make it bigger as needed! It will be great for getting them outside but separate from the older birds as they integrate into the flock. We can easily throw something like a tarp over the top when needed for shade or protection too.

What kind of animal could you use a playpen for? Stay tuned for photos of our chicks and keets using this!
Wonderful playpen! Thank you so much for reviewing!
Bell Fur Zoo says
That looks really nice and perfect for the chicks and keets. I think it would also be great for those that are in hurricane areas like myself to take with them if they have to evacuate to families houses or even for camp grounds. We have a big metal crate for Matt and a small one for Matilda for evacuations but this would be perfect for yards that don’t have fences during those times.

You are absolutely right, Jenny. It’s so easy to move around and can give a lot of space for the animals to move around too, instead of being more confined.
I wish we’d had this back in the days when we camped, it would have been so much easier than the tie-out things we used!
If left as a straight kind of fencing, that would help keep the hooligans out of my garden area, at least until they know its off limits…though the critters that invade our property are always a temptation to forget and jump over the current 32 inch fence…sigh…
Those critters sneaking in do not help matters!! 🙂

I’d love one of these for the boys. It would be nice to keep them corralled at certain times.
It’s nice if you can keep them contained sometimes, but give them more space to move around. I think Luke would be much happier in this when we have company than in his crate.
Ellen Pilch says
That looks like a nice pen. We love our Yaheetech cat tree.
Their cat trees are really cool!
These are so important if your out somewhere. Park or picnic and you need to keep your precious one safe.
Great review and I know Luke will take to this just fine.
Have a fabulous day and weekend. Smooches to Luke. ♥
So true! So much easier and more secure than just trying to use a leash or tie-down type thing to keep your dog with you.
Tails Around the Ranch says
Wow, that’s pretty cool…for both dogs and chickens. That’s one versatile playpen!
We love products that can serve multiple uses around the home and farm!
Ducky's Mom says
That looks like a great playpen! We recently got a used one from our rescue group – all we have to do is send in a donation in an amount we feel comfortable with.
That’s so nice!! You’ll be set for that new puppy then! ♥
Brian Frum says
That does look pretty nice Luke but I hope you get outta jail soon!
It was a short-term incarceration, thankfully!
we will buy one too… that is really something what’s solid and easy to build… bet even our dad can tinker that together without duct tape (we hope)
We think he can!!! 🙂
JoAnn Stancer says
That looks pretty darn cool and well built.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was to put together.
Nice job adjusting to it Luke. We like ours too. There are a lot of uses for one of these, not just as a puppy playpen!
It’s so true! I think ours will end up getting a lot of use. I wonder if you’ve taken yours on the road?
What a great playpen, not just for Luke but for your chicks too!
Can’t wait to see the little cuties in there!
